If you like trains this is a must see - many great shots of trains in the 1930's and of early to mid 1930's cars. The kids train set looks a lot like out Marx train set - that locomotive is classsic. A unique twist on the "how to drive safely" theme upon which JH produced several films. Some shots of the Penobscot bldg and what looks like a partly obscured Detroit Main Train station appear in this film. On scene shows all the air pollution that industry produced in those days...maybe the Ford complex, not certain though. 5 stars for train buffs.
Subject: Wow! Lovely train shots.
The story line is preposterous, the acting and casting are nothing to write home about, and the editing of the drama section sucks. But somehow, the whole ensemble is actually pretty good in its own terms.
Points to note:
Some of the trains in the early sequences are steaming along tracks with weeds in between the rails. This normally denotes a seldom used track and gives lie to the notion that we're watching crack express trains traversing the USA 8-)
The electric model train which crashes about 70 seconds into the film must have had some cigarettes or something put inside. In fact the loco is smoking just as much BEFORE it crashes as afterwards!
The relationship between the three characters shown in the film is (as noted by Spuzz) very badly drawn, are the younger guys brothers or.. what?
Contains some excellent 'over the driver's shoulder' shots going down a crowded road showing loads of 1930s cars and trucks.

Well, I don't think anyone would have.
